Your Chosen Card – Two of Cups Reversed Thoth Deck
When reversed, the Two of Cups implies that you might be having difficulty with a friendship or romantic interest. It may be that the close bond you thought existed was really a false friendship or that the other person does not truly have your best interests at heart. There appears to be some sort of lack of commitment to the relationship. If you are unable to resolve the disharmony, it could result in estrangement or the dissolution of a relationship. In terms of romance, it may be that sexual attraction between the partners is simply lacking. There is no point continuing to pursue someone if the only response you get is disinterest or unrequited love. A relationship based on sex without love and mutual respect is doomed to failure.

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: Ancient astrology dealt with the seven planets (‘wanderers’) visible to the naked eye. The awareness of these seven wandering ‘stars’ gave rise to the seven-day week, each day being named after one of the visible planets: Sunday (Sun day), Monday (Moon day), Tuesday (Mars day), Wednesday (Mercury day), Thursday (Jupiter day), Friday (Venus day), and Saturday (Saturn day). The ancients included the Sun and the Moon among the planets because they wandered across the heavens. The Golden Dawn assigned seven of the major arcana cards to the seven visible ‘planets’ of antiquity.
Portable Magic: The planet Venus rules the first decanate of Cancer, which is the decanate given to the Two of Cups. The planetary modifier of Venus is the Empress, which seems a very appropriate choice for this ritual.
Complete Book of Tarot: Fact 12: The history of the tarot is fascinating, but you dont need to know it to read the cards effectively. On the other hand, learning about the origins of the ideas and symbols artists used to illustrate the cards can give you a greater sense of their meaning and place in Western culture. I enjoy understanding the evolution of ideas and historical trends, so I have included numerous comments about history throughout this text. Knowing a little about the history can keep you from falling prey to many of the false ideas about the cards that have been perpetrated over the course of time. Tarot is a fanciful and imaginative process, so its nice to keep at least one foot planted on the ground.
